Limit rate of login attempts, including by way of cookies, for each IP. Fully customizable.
My sight was getting attacked in the severest way around 2 weeks ago from locations literally all of the world. If it were not for this plugin I would not have known about it and they would probably not have stopped if it weren't also for the lockouts.
I also ended up IP Blocking whole ranges of IP addresses through the hosting control panel.
It really is a shame that this has stopped being supported, even if it was only to bring it up to current version format. I hope it is before it breaks or someone else brings out another program like it. There appears to be buggerall at the moment.
Simple and it works :-)
Easy to use and works. Recommended to me by someone highly knowledgeable in the WordPress community.
Okay, it´s not updated since 3 years, but this plugin is easy to use. It still works and does a great job. A Must have plugin :)
Okay, it´s not updated since 3 years, but this plugin is easy to use. It still works and does a great job. It proteced my side 3 times in 4 weeks from attacks of China, Russia and Brazil. Thx a lot.
The only way this could be better is, if this plugin hooks into a centralized service on the internet that takes note of the blocked IP addresses and attempts to either notify compromised computer owners, or keep a blacklist of the most commonly blocked IP addresses. But even as-is, this is one of the most useful security plugins out there. And it's free!
This plugin works like a charm. It caught 97 attempted logins this morning alone.
I install this plugin by default on all my sites. Works like a charm!
However, we all should remain aware of the potential for hacks described in at least one thorough 1-star review by Chltx. Check it out and be aware.
Thank you to the developers of this plugin!
